Back from Oblivion!


Blogger has apparently recovered from whatever mishap shut it down.  Now to see whether they restore yesterday's post.  Just in case, however, I'm repeating the photo of the giant quarter.

And lest you forget the mass autographing . . .

Here's the official SFWA press release:

A mass book signing will be held on Friday, May 20, 2011 from 5:30 p.m. until 7:00 p.m.
